Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Training: Onsite Training:

Getting the Right Knowledge to the Right People at the Right Time. Anywhere. With Client Site Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don't incur travel costs and students won't be away from home. An additional advantage is that the class is taught on your equipment, so students are learning in their work environment rather than in a classroom setup.

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is a very difficult certification to achieve and is considered a global standard that proves an individualís proficiency in several different security disciplines. It attests to that personís ability to meet a stringent set of criteria as defined by the (ISC)² and is a testament to the individualís skill in comprehending a broad spectrum of information system security concepts, principles, and methodologies.

Since the CISSP credential covers a wide range of security-related topics, it is seen as a requirement for many technical, mid-management, and senior management positions.

The Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) was carefully constructed to cover all essential elements necessary for thorough security today. The CISSP exam covers the CBK, which is broken down into the ten domains listed next.

  • Access Control Systems and Methodology
  • Applications and Systems Development
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Cryptography
  • Law, Investigation, & Ethics
  • Operations Security
  • Physical Security
  • Enterprise Security Architecture
  • Security Management Practices
  • Telecommunications, Networks, and Internet Security

Businesses pay for their employees to gain knowledge that can be brought back to the company and used to improve that organization overall. The knowledge should be utilized to enhance services and products, secure business functions and infrastructures, provide better implementation processes, restructure critical programs and procedures, and keep the company up-to-date on todayís business and security strategies, technologies, and best practices.

Who Should Attend - Prerequisite:
Any individual may attend this course, but those with experience in one or more of the ten domains will reap the greatest benefits.

Enrolling for the certification exam on Day 7 is not mandatory, but is advised while information is current. Some students, however, prefer to do additional review and attempt the exam at a later date. (ISC)2 has specific requirements for exam enrolling procedures, which are separate from this course.
Course Aims:

To obtain the CISSP credential, individuals are required to have a broad range of knowledge across all domains. This includes security policy development, secure software development procedures, network vulnerabilities, attack types and corresponding countermeasures, cryptography concepts and their uses, disaster recovery plans and procedures, risk analysis, crucial laws and regulations, forensics, computer crime investigation procedures, physical security, and much, much more.

Enoís materials allows your students to provide a comprehensive CISSP course with a goal of not only helping students achieve their CISSP certification, but to help teach them the complex concepts that fill the CBK. Students will learn the contents and concepts of the diverse domains and how they should work together to provide true in-depth defense.

Over 1,500 pages containing the following items:

  • 10 modules cover the 10 domains of the Common Body of Knowledge
  • Each and every slide the instructor will present in-class
  • Professionally developed graphics for conceptual understanding
  • 3-D animations for understanding of complex concepts
  • Underneath each slide there is 4-5 paragraphs explaining concepts in slides, Configuration Steps, Hints, Warnings, Tips, Tables, etc.
  • Each module has a Quick Tips section, Summary section, Terminology section, and 20 question and answers
  • Review materials for the 6th day of class include the following;
  • A final practice exam of 200+ questions in addition to those included in student manual
  • A CISSP review sheet
  • A CISSP cram session

Upon class completion, students will have been provided background and participated in discussions related to the 10 domains of the CBK. This information will provide a solid foundation in preparation for security professionals taking the CISSP exam administered by (ISC)². More importantly, this course will broaden the studentís current understanding of all of the components that are necessary to provide true security. These items are presented in a manner that will allow the students to bring back security solutions to their current employer.
